Drilling a Deep Water Well - (Part 2 of 3)

Drilling a Deep Water Well - (Part 2 of 3)

It's Day 3 of drilling our private deep water well for our off grid mountain homestead. We are quite literally betting the farm. If we do not hit water, we will not be able to build a house. Building on top of a mountain and getting equipment there poses some risks and definite problems. Will we hit water and if so will it be enough?
